Arizona Legislator wants to criminalize defenders

She looks innocent enough doesn't she?
Arizona House of Representative Kyrsten Sinema (District 15, Phoenix) is proposing legislation that would revise an Arizona criminal statute that would make felons out of patriots, and classify groups such as the Minutemen, Guardian Angels or anyone daring to voluntarily identify and report illegal activity in her state as "domestic terrorists" and worthy of a 6-month minimum stint in prison.
The following is a text of the bill she is sponsers:
A. An individual or group of individuals commits domestic terrorism if the individual or group of individuals are not affiliated with a local, state or federal law enforcement entity and associate with another individual or group of individuals as an organization, group, corporation or company for the purpose of patrolling to detect alleged illegal activity or to individually patrol for the purpose of detecting alleged illegal activity and if the individual or group of individuals is armed with a firearm or other weapon.

B. Any city, town or county that suffers injury arising out of a violation of this section may maintain an action in superior court for the recovery of damages or for an injunction, or both. the court may award the successful party reasonable attorney fees.

C. If the court sentences the defendant to a term of probation, the court shall order that as an initial condition of probation the defendant be imprisoned in the county jail for a period of not less than six months. This jail term of incarceration shall not be deferred, deleted or otherwise suspended and shall commence on the date of sentencing. THis subsection does not apply to persons who are sentenced to serve a period of incarceration in the state department of corrections.

D. A violation of this section is a class 5 felony.

Obviously Ms. Sinema does not believe in the second amendment or the right for law abiding Americans to defend their own country, property or themselves. The Minutemen who are often discribed as NeoNazis, KKK, and right-wing extremist zenophobes, to date have not had one documented instance of perpetuated violence. On the contrary, when ever they have assembled to lodge peaceful legal protests, they are generally the victims of verbal and even physical assault. It is clear that Ms. Sinema is an enemy to the majority of Americans that believe in securing our borders and having a well regulated and sustainable immigration policy.

They won't defend us and they don't want us to defend ourselves. People like this are the reason that private, unregistered sales of firearms are so important.

That's one spooky babe. Unfortunately, one of many. It's not that they can't see disaster unfolding - rather, they appear to welcome it.
